Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Meet the FIFA Supergrass!

He may look more than a little like Father Christmas, but Chuck Blazer - an American board member of FIFA - is apparently the supergrass behind the US Attorney General Office's indictments against seven FIFA officials this week. According to the crackerjack BBC reporting on this matter this week, Blazer - a 70 year-old New Yorker who has served at the highest levels of international football for decades - was approached by the FBI two years ago and given the opportunity to turn evidence against his fellow FIFA officials in exchange for legal immunity. Loretta Lynch's office is building their case against Sepp Blatter largely based on Blazer's evidence. Let's hope Santa has the goods.

Breaking news - the first round vote:

Blatter - 133 votes
Prince Ali's - 73 votes

Not enough for a two-third majority; they'll move on to a second round of voting.

Oh, bugger. Prince Ali has conceded, so Blatter has been re-elected to his fifth term as president of FIFA.

We can only hope now that Blatter will be brought down by Loretta Lynch.

I sure hope Santa is a scrooge for Evil Sepp. Why did the Prince concede? Will Loretta Lynch need to dig up more clues?
